As a writer I frequently find myself needing to communicate a lot of information in as few words as possible in order to keep the story moving, and it can be difficult to know whether I'm succeeding or not. Unlike many other issues my primary beta reader isn't much help with this, since we spend so much time discussing the setting, powers, assumptions, characterization and so on that he generally doesn't notice if an explanation doesn't actually make it into the story.
So here's your chance to tell me what didn't get explained well in Fimbulwinter, and maybe get an answer. I can't promise to answer every question, but if you want to know something that isn't a spoiler I'll probably have something to say about it.
To maximize your chance of getting a response, please adhere to a few simple rules:
- Limit yourself to asking about one topic per comment. That way if a conversation develops around a topic it won't end up mixed in with posts about some other topic.
- Check to see if someone else has already asked about the same thing. If you just want more clarification about a point that's already been discussed, add a reply to that comment instead of creating a new top-level comment of your own.
